Google Docs + GitHub

When I first started us­ing Google Docs, my fa­vorite fea­ture was smart” au­tosav­ing. Smart” be­cause it’s not just an in­ter­val, but also based on con­tent changes. Today, al­most all pop­u­lar web-based text ed­i­tors have both au­tosav­ing (WordPress, Medium, etc.) and rich text for­mat­ting (think [f]CKEditor and TinyMCE a decade ago).

Twitter Subaccounts

I think Twitter should have a con­cept of sub-ac­counts. It’s not smart to cre­ate a Twitter ac­count for every small pro­ject, but it’s of­ten a ne­ces­sity for sup­port or a so­cial me­dia pres­ence. In my case, I have a Twitter ac­count, and so does Oswald Labs (which makes com­plete sense since it’s a com­pany and I’m just a small part of it).

When you’re ad­ver­tis­ing your smart­phone app, per­haps the first thing you show off are plat­form badges. They’re the eas­i­est and most fa­mil­iar way to tell users where they can find your app. All ma­jor plat­forms, Apple’s App Store, Google Play, and Microsoft Store have of­fi­cial badges which are some­what con­sis­tent with each other.
